Let me start by saying the food was good. I got a sushi roll and asparagus and I was happy. However, the service was awful. I've worked in fine dining (also, currently) for a while, and I was so disappointed. Dale, our server, was rushing us so much that he SPILLED MY 18$ glass of wine and covered it up... More

The experience was not at all wonderful. They wouldn't seat us for over 45 minutes when they had multiple seats the would've accommodated us fine. It took forever to get the food

This has been our least favorite dinner thus far about 4 nights in. Other than the view and the kids menu, no redeeming qualities. We made a reservation at 7 for 5 - 2 adults and 3 kids- but it wasnt needed as the place was pretty quiet. We sat outside which was nice but with three kids it took... More

My husband and I had a late dinner last night at Marina Cafe. We sat outside overlooking the harbor. The food and service were top notch. Our waiter Joey was excellent!! His recommendations for food and wine pairings were perfect. We will definitely be back!

Arrived at happy hour which may not have been a good time as the bar was BOGOF, tried the monitor, it was poorly made, very small with very little alcohol, my impression was the BOGOF offer was not true and that they just reduced the portions!
